Title: Storm Cloud Assortment
Post by: martinastro on June 21, 2011, 11:46:02 pm
A selection of convective weather images taken from my home area recently...

Thunderstorm over Maghera with entire left section rotating rapidly for 10 min's, I thought it was going to spawn a funnel or better over the town. Got one big flash of i-c lightning and torrential rain which soaked me to the skin. I'm amazed by the amount of rotation events I've been seeing in my home area this year.
